    Glad you're settled elsewhere, Emily. It looks like Georgia will take a big hit, too but hopefully it will lessen a bit by the time it reaches there.

    Glad to hear from you too Catrin -- it's been a while!

    Thanks NY Biker - between the neck surgery in July and the upcoming shoulder surgery in 4 weeks there hasn't been too many other things to post. I still drop in to see how everyone is doing.

We are now in a beautiful spot in Mississippi, where we hope we will be just outside the wind/rain zones and avoid the brunt of this awful storm. Just hope the RV park is there to go back to AND that we can get there on the roads, with all the many evacuees wanting to return home. We won't head that way until we know we can make it (utilities back on, gas stations with gas, and roads not totally clogged).

    It is gorgeous here, we're just two miles from a lovely, very lightly used paved rail-trail (Longleaf Trace), and we're feeling pretty content right now. Worried about other friends who are sticking it out in Florida, though!

    Here's what it looks like from our site:

    And here's a view of Pearl, our motorhome, from around the bend at the lake:

    Emily, you two are so blessed to be able to drive your home away from severe weather…..

    the upheaval in so many people's lives, especially children, can be such depressing and dark moments…my prayers that the light of choosing hope can help those going through it…..

    Got home last night after 9:30 pm. No damage to the house, but I do need to check the roof later. There were a lot of branches down.

    It took 9 hours to drive 232 miles. Had I stayed on the interstate, it would have been much longer.
    So long as the wheels are still turning, life is good.

    Yeah….so many inconveniences, like people trying to get back home, in the immediate aftermath to deal with….good to hear no visible damage to your home……hoping your roof is fine!

    I would have loved to stay an extra day, but work recalled me.

    Glad all looked well on first glance, Sheila. Hope the roof is fine.

    We are going to start on our two-day journey back to Winter Garden tomorrow. I-10 has been looking decent today on the Florida 511 website, but I-75 is still very busy. We may take an alternate route on Day 2 to avoid that, if it still looks as crunched up. We checked Gasbuddy to make sure there would be enough gas, and it looks promising. Naples and the rest of southwest Florida are in much worse shape for gas, but our route has plenty of stations with gas and electricity as of today -- should be even better in coming days as the oil trucks are moving!
